Usually it all works out great, but if you want to make things move a little smoother, Apartment Therapy recommends you come up with a task list to give out specific instructions. The idea here is that most friends, no matter how well you know each other, aren't going to just rifle through all your stuff and haul it out to a truck. To keep things moving forward, give them specific instructions about what you want them to do, and when: No one wants to rifle through your things or assume which pieces go where. Help your friends know how to help you by giving them specific tasks to keep them busy and the move, well, moving! It might sound a little weird to do this with friends, but it really does make everyone's lives easier. They likely just want to get the whole thing over with, so point them in the direction that'll help the most.
